I thought the displays were very well done and liked the lighting and flow of the musuem. There was a school party visiting at the same time and as is usual with Spanish kids they were very noisy. If you're not used to that it could be really annoying. The staff were very helpful as was the literature provided. It... More

This museum takes one through the history of Jerez with a very good audioguide. We were the only people in the museum on a wet November day. We were really enjoying ourselves when we were asked to leave. Astonishingly the museum close for two hours from 2pm to 4pm for lunch! What a shame as we never got back there.

This is a little off the beaten track, and you walk through some rather run down areas - but we did feel safe enough getting there. We waited outside until it opened at 4pm. when we got inside were were rather surprised - it is extremely well set out. The audio guide is worth having as whilst the various video... More

The collection housed in recently modernised building is well worth a visit. The free English audio guide is finely pitched with just enough information and three video introductions, one to each section are also available in English.

The city dates back to Phoenician times, and was successively ruled by the Romans, Vandals, Moors and Christian Spanish. Before these empires, humans inhabited the fertile area roughly 500,000 yrs ago. The museum displays this rich history... More

Newly renovated the displays are fresh though all in Spanish. For retired persons two Euros is a bargain as it includes an English audio guide. The videos are excellent. In a heritage building
